    Bumblebee again? Maybe Prime? I'm curious to know if any of these figures will have the hype that some of the movie figures do.

    I'm excited for the toy line, but not so much the cartoon...

    We're back to kiddie stuff and it will be plentiful. Scalpers will shift focus to next year's movie toys or back to Star Wars/Marvel Legends/GI Joe 20th Anniversary/whatever Toyfare tells them to. Only store exclusives will be scalped, if there are any.

    I've always wondered if it isn't scalpers who start these kinds of threads.

    I think that the Allspark Power movie stuff will continue to get scalped, but I'm not so sure about Animated/Universe. I never had a problem with scalpers for Classics, so that's why I doubt Universe will face that issue. Animated, I don't know. Depends on how successful it is. If it's very popular, I'd say Prime, BB, maybe Megatron, Starscream, and the Dinobots, will be the ones hardest to find.

    I doubt scalping will be much of an issue with Animated. The only reason it was so bad with the movie is that it was a really high-profile film and the toyline suffered major shortages for nearly two months.

    I'll agree that there probably won't be a big (or at least movie-style bigger than usual) issue with scalping on Animated toys, unless some item is shown to be exceptionally rare and/or popular. Most mainline TF toys don't make their rarity apparent until they are almost done shipping. (and then someone from another region/country says "They're clogging the shelves here!") :)

    If I have as much trouble finding the Animated figures as I had with the movie toys I'm going to start rethinking about what to collect. It's hard enough to get the cash together to get the figures I want, now I spend double the amount in gas driving around looking for them.

    I'm gonna say Prowl. I think he'll end being popular like Batman was in the JL cartoon.
